See us on Facebook


facebook-logo-pinkDid you know that we have a Facebook page?

I love using Facebook because I can talk directly with you.  I can answer your questions and show you what I am working on.

Do you have a Facebook account?  It’s easy to set up and you don’t have to chatter about what you had for lunch!  It’s a great way to keep in touch with people who are special to you.

cuffOn our page we show you our new products like these stunning cufflinks for your men.  (Great Christmas gift idea!)  

Because Facebook is all about connecting with and talking to people, that means that you can ask me whatever questions you like about the product and get an answer quickly.  Sometimes it is easier than emailing, especially if you already go to Facebook anyway.

The other great thing about our Facebook page is that I can show you the items we have created for other people.  That will show you what we are able to do but it will also give you some ideas that you can use in the future.

Come on over and talk to me on Facebook. I’d love to hear from you.

Snazzy Ways to Wrap Your Gift

An Etched in Memories photo pendant is a very special keepsake so it deserves to be wrapped and presented in a special way. Whether it is for a birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day, anniversary or any other special occasion here are some ideas on unique ways to wrap this memorable gift:


  • If it is for Christmas, make a Christmas cracker and place the pendant inside as the “surprise” gift.  You can get DIY kits from department stores or Spotlight.
  • Place the pendant in a small gift box and place it in a bunch of roses, or favourite flowers.
  • Using the picture that has been etched onto the pendant, make wrapping paper on your computer. You could also make a collage of photos and use as unique wrapping paper.
  • Place the pendant in a little pouch or box and put it in a larger box, fill with  favourite chocolates such as pre-wrapped Lindt, or Roses chocolates.
  • You can involve your children and get them to make very cute little wrapping paper using their fingerprints.
  • Have you heard of Furoshiki? It is a traditional Japanese method of wrapping gifts using pre cut and stitched pieces of silk. There are some interesting techniques here on ways to try. You could go to a fabric store and buy some really gorgeous quilting fabric (fat quarter) as another option.

These are just a few ideas.  The possibilities for creating that extra special touch with your wrapping pendant are endless.
